508. Little is known about the self-taught painter Ernest Hüpeden (1878-1915). Born in Germany, he began painting while imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit. Hüpeden was eventually freed and came to the United States in 1878. For several years he worked throughout southern Wisconsin, painting murals inside homes and on the outside of barns and other buildings. In 1897, he arrived in the Wisconsin town of Valton where he was hired to paint the interior walls of the Modern Woodman Camp Hall in exchange for his room and board. By December 1899, after almost two years of work, he had created a spectacular panoramic mural covering every square inch of the 60' x 33' x 24' structure. These oils are owned by Edgewood College, Madison, Wisconsin.

509. This painting has suffered terrible damage resulting in pervasive loss of paint but the feeling and mood of the original is still there. Careful retouching will recapture the "lost image" and return the 17th-Century Venetian painting to an exhibitable appearance. The oil is owned by the University of Iowa Museum of Art, Iowa City, Iowa. Their great Pollock is now undergoing conservation treatment at the Getty Conservation Institute.
